Public Works Department

Mission Statement

The Public Works Department provides integral services to our community every day. Our department's mission is to maintain the City's thoroughfares so as to ensure the safe movement for both vehicular and pedestrian travel, and to oversee the efficient operation of the City's solid waste collection/recycling program. Developing and offering efficient, cost effective services in partnership with our citizens will help us achieve our vision to make Springdale a leading city in the country by being an outstanding provider of Public Works Services.


The City maintains 43.72 centerline miles / 138.51 lane miles within Springdale. This includes both State Route 4 (Springfield Pike) and State Route 747 (Princeton Pike), but not I-275.

Public Works is responsible for the management of the Right of Way which generally includes the road, curbs, sidewalks, trees, and utilities. This Right of Way area varies depending on the street, but ranges from 20 feet to 100 feet in overall width. This area is owned by the City of Springdale, however, it is up to the property owner to maintain.  The department is also responsible for roadway capital improvements that take place throughout the City.
